While helping fourth-grade students with reading comprehension difficulties, a teacher tries to think of an approach that would support them in this important learning. What is one effective instructional strategy to use?

A. Let the students complete workbook pages in small groups rather than individually.

B. Identify pairs of students, one of whom is an accomplished reader and the other, a child with comprehension difficulties. Give the former an explicit strategy for pausing at natural breaks in the story to ask the latter student a question, explain an idea, or summarize what has happened thus far.

C. Have students work independently on workbook pages and provide them with an answer key to check their own work. Use the results to form reading groups.

D. Allow students to choose whatever skills pages they would like to complete and have a classroom aide check them.
